Another day, another update regarding the future of Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who is heavily linked with a move to Manchester United.
On July 24th, La Gazzetta Dello Sport reported that the deal is close and the Serbian international will sign a five year contract worth 6-7 million euros with the Red Devils.
On July 25th Corriere Dello Sport reported that the Old Trafford club are in talks with Lazio, who want 100 million euros for their prized asset.
Most recently, yesterday, Corriere Dello Sport came up with a major update and stated that as far as the terms of contract between Milinkovic-Savic and Man United are concerned, a full agreement has been reached.
The Italian source have mentioned that the player has agreed a five year deal (worth £27million till 2024) that will make him earn £5.4million annually i.e around £104,000-a-week.
As far as the price is concerned, CdS have stated that the agreement on bonuses is still missing and Serie A side’s president, Lotito, would like to get a total fee of 90 million euros from the sale of of the midfielder.
So far, United have strengthened their attack and defense this summer and they should reinforce the midfield before the transfer window closes next month.
United have not replaced Ander Herrera as yet. Like the Spaniard, Milinkovic-Savic is also a versatile player, who can effectively play in the central as well as the attacking midfield.
The Serbian, 24, is in his peak years and like new signings Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James, he’d be another addition that would be able to serve the Old Trafford club in the long run.
